Not all plants need the same amount of water. This can make it very tricky to know how frequently to water your garden. It's important to learn common signs of over and under watering for plants in your garden.
Just like over watering can cause problems, giving your plant too little water is another common mistake new growers make. Plants that need water on a regular basis will often struggle with slightly too long between watering.
Fertilizing is a great way to give plants that extra boost but it's easy to overdo it. Commercially available fertilizers are often quite potent and need to be diluted before using.
Many novice gardeners start plants from seeds. Once plants get larger than seedlings, beginners may not realize they need to thin out the plants to allow room for them to fully develop.
